REPORT: Why Do Democrats Want To Take American Back To The 1930’s?

The 1930’s were a particularly tough time that saw the frightening rise of Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini, the terrible difficulties of the Great Depression, and the subsequent deaths of tens of millions to war and the enslavement of hundreds of millions to authoritarian regimes. 

With that said, why in the world do Democrats today seem so determined to push America back to the 1930’s?

Democrats Set the Wayback Machine to the 1930s
From court-packing to Weimar Monetary Theory, their new ideas feel distinctly retro.

For a party that prides itself on its appeal to the young, the Democrats sure have a lot of old ideas. Of course, no conservative would automatically gainsay an old idea, but the Democrats are supposed to be, you know, progressive.

So let’s look at some of their oldies.

First up: an idea straight out of 1937. In that year, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, fresh from a landslide re-election (he carried 46 of 48 states), which gifted him more-super-than-supermajorities in Congress, also resolved to build a supermajority on the Supreme Court. In previous years, the court, dominated by conservatives, had derailed many of Roosevelt’s New Deal programs. And so the re-elected 32nd president, feeling hubristic, sent to Congress a plan to expand the body from nine to 15 justices—with the idea being, of course, that he could appoint the new six.

Republican opponents immediately dubbed the initiative “court-packing,” and the label stuck. Soon, conservative and moderate Democrats peeled away. And so, despite Roosevelt’s strenuous efforts—including an attempted purge of recalcitrant Dems—the court-packing plan died. Even worse from the White House’s point of view, the public, alarmed by visions of “Caesarism,” punished FDR’s party in the 1938 midterm elections, handing the GOP a massive victory. Indeed, the result was the formation of a bipartisan “conservative coalition” that dominated Capitol Hill for the next quarter century. In other words, the court-packing plan was the most consequential legislative and political failure of the Roosevelt administration.

So perhaps it’s a bit strange that now, eight decades later, “court-packing” is making a comeback in Democratic circles. A March 18 headline in Politico lays it out: “2020 Dems warm to expanding Supreme Court.” As the article details, presidential hopefuls Pete Buttigieg, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, and Elizabeth Warren are all at least somewhat supportive of court-packing.

In the meantime, the rest of us would do well to remember that if one side can pack the Supreme Court, the other side can, too. And so maybe both sides ought to agree to give the Constitution a respite from that sort of drama.

Speaking of the 1930s, we can point to other ideas from that decade that are being dusted off. One is the New Deal—oops, I mean, the Green New Deal. As pitched by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a swelling chorus of Democratic presidential wannabes, the Green New Deal seems to consist of one part concern over CO2 and another part desire to remake the rest of our society. Thus, in addition to the goal of defeating carbon, an early but revealing draft aims at providing free health care, eliminating racism, and guaranteeing “economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work” [emphasis added].

Or as The Economist put it, “Utopia now.”

If it’s impossible to find a conservative who thinks utopia is doable—or that the Green New Deal is utopia—it’s also hard to find a moderate who thinks such an earthly paradise is feasible. So maybe that’s one reason why Ocasio-Cortez’s national unfavorable rating is now substantially higher than her favorable rating. In the meantime, election-minded Democrats hope without much hope that AOC and her zealous allies will learn to chill.

A second and related blast from the past is the idea of a Universal Basic Income (UBI). This is being pushed most notably by long-shot presidential aspirant Andrew Yang—who, we might note, has accumulated 65,000 donors and thus seems destined to get into the Democratic debates. So a March 15 Washington Post headline wasn’t wrong when it pronounced of Yang, “Haven’t heard of him? You will soon.”

Under Yang’s UBI plan, every American citizen would get $12,000 a year, no matter what. (And yes, were a UBI ever to get near enactment, you can bet there’d be a strong push to get rid of the requirement that one be a citizen to get the money.)

In the meantime, UBI has the support of many prominent lefties, such as former labor secretary Robert Reich. And yes, even some libertarians support UBI. In the meantime, the rest of us can say: if you like welfare dependency, you’ll really love UBI dependency.

Here again, UBI is an idea with a ’30s pedigree. Back then, the Townsend Plan was popular, and so was the Ham and Eggs Movement, and so were Senator Huey Long’s slogans of “every man a king” and “share our wealth.” Fortunately for the fisc, those ideas all stalled before enactment. Interestingly, FDR, while okay with providing government benefits, never wanted to sever the connection between work and reward. As he said in 1935, money-for-nothing schemes are “a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit.”

A third idea from the wayback machine is ultra-high income tax rates. Ocasio-Cortez has talked about pushing the top rate to 70 percent; she notes correctly that the top rate was that high or higher for much of the 20th century. Specifically, the top rate was raised from 25 percent to 63 percent in 1932, then to 79 percent in 1936, and then to 94 percent in 1944. Today, prominent economists on the left, including the New York Times’ Paul Krugman, agree that such high rates should be reimposed.

We can say that the rich should pay more—here’s looking at you, carried-interest loophole!—and still be aware that raising rates is not the same thing as actually collecting revenues. That is, behavioral effects kick in, as earners and investors adjust their activity—and their accounting—to beat the rate. That’s the lesson of the Laffer Curve, which has guided Republican economics since the Reagan era.

The issue is that money, especially at the high end, is so, well, liquid that it’s easy for fatcats to push their reported income down below whatever the desired threshold might be—or to channel it overseas.

We can observe that for most of the 20th century, the specters of war, fascism, and communism had the effect of trapping American capital in the U.S.; that is, money just wasn’t safe in most places. And yet today, thanks, ironically enough, to U.S. victories in various hot and cold wars, easily 20 countries and jurisdictions around the world qualify as not just tax havens, but plausible places to hold citizenship, and perhaps even to inhabit.

So while one can lament the ingratitude of tax exiles, what one can’t do—at least not without an extraordinary amount of effort—is collect money from them. To be sure, it’s possible to imagine an international regime in which enforcement and harmonization make tax exiling and other kinds of tax avoidance more difficult, even dangerous. But as we have learned, it’s hard to get the world to agree on much of anything. Moreover, there’s always the concern about killing the goose that lays the golden egg.

So perhaps the better answer is to set reasonable rates and then seek to truly collect revenues from rich individuals and profitable companies that never seem to pay anything. For instance, earlier this year, we learned that Amazon made a profit of $11.2 billion in 2018, yet paid zero federal income tax. Does that seem fair to you? Not to me either. So again, before we go raising rates that chase economic activity out of the country, let’s reform the system such that billion-dollar people and trillion-dollar companies pay at least something.

Moving right along, if we continue our look into the Democrats’ 20th-century memory book—if we delve back even further back, in fact, to the 1920s—we come upon an antecedent to Modern Monetary Theory. MMT, of course, is the voguish notion pushed by Stephanie Kelton, a longtime associate of Senator Bernie Sanders, which holds that countries with their own currency can print all the money they want without ill effect.

Yet Modern Monetary Theory might just as well be called Weimar Monetary Theory, as we recall, without affection, the German hyperinflation of 1921-23. Historians regard that monetary debacle, which wiped out Germany’s middle class, as one of that country’s stepping stones on the road to Nazism.

Image result for germans burning money

More recently, the Weimar-ish fate of Venezuela—another country with the freedom to print all the fiat currency it wishes—is also, shall we say, a discouraging indicator.

It does seem that spending and deficits matter less than we were initially told. After all, in the wake of the 2008 meltdown, the Federal Reserve pumped $4 trillion into the economy, and inflation did not tick up. Why not? It appears that in slack times, as we saw during the last decade, the extra money just gets socked away—perhaps in Chinese mattresses. In other words, we could have spent a lot more on, say, productive infrastructure and not paid a price in higher prices.

Yet even if we’ve been over-cautious, fiscally and monetarily, in recent years, the ultimate reality of inflation—that too much money chasing too few goods causes higher prices—is never going to change.

So yes, for many hip Democrats, old ideas are new again. But that doesn’t make them good.


 

New Information Points To Obama-Era Ambassadors Involved In Plot To ‘Take Trump Down’

Yet another sickening layer to the Deep State machinations that worked to delegitimize the votes of tens of millions of Americans and destroy a duly elected President of the United States…

Image result for Deep State vs Trump

Via Zero Hedge:

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) revealed that “sitting ambassadors” were involved in a plot to “take down” President Trump.

Sitting down with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Sara Carter and Gregg Jarrett, Meadows said that the release of new documents will “show” that US ambassadors conspired with the DOJ, reports the Washington Examiner.

“It’s additional information that is coming out that will show not only was there no collusion, but there was a coordinated effort to take this president down,” said Meadows.

“We talk about the ‘Deep State.’ There are players now, even ambassadors, that are sitting ambassadors that were involved in part of this with the FBI-DOJ.”

“As we look at this, it’s time to show that we show the American people what’s out there, declassify some of those documents,” Meadows added. “I think when the American people see what I’ve seen, they will judge for themselves and know that this has all been a hoax.”


 

WOW! 3.1% GDP, Fastest Wage Gains Since 2009, Millions Off Food Stamps, Record Low Unemployment

If Barack Obama had garnered this kind of economic success the far left media would have happily declared him, “POTUS for Life.” 

This is President Trump and the American people’s success, though, so instead the far left media ignores the great news in favor of yet more anti-Trump and anti-America bashing. 

That means it’s up to all of YOU to help get the good word out…

LOL: Americans Overwhelmingly Reject Nancy Pelosi’s Bizarre Idea To Lower Voting Age To 16

It was another odd moment for current Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, as she mumbled and twitched her way to an idea that would see 16-year-olds voting in U.S. elections as a means of “capturing” those kids and turning them into Democrats.

From eating Tide PODS to helping decide the political future of a nation?

A new poll makes clear the vast majority of Americans think that is a very-very bad idea…

Image result for pelosi lower voting age

Via Hannity.com:

A new poll published Tuesday shows an overwhelming majority of American voters outright reject Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s recent push to lower the voting age to 16; throwing more cold-water on the leading Democrat’s efforts to “capture kids” while they’re “in high school.”

“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 17% of Likely U.S. Voters favor lowering the legal national voting age from 18 to 16. Seventy-four percent (74%) are opposed,” reports Rasmussen.

Even worse for Pelosi, just 25% of Democrats favored lowering the national voting age. That number decreased to 9% among Republican voters.

“IT WASN’T RUSSIA. IT WAS US.”

By now most reasonable-thinking folks understand the entirety of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax was little more than a multi-billion dollar Democrat-media-Deep State scam meant to discredit the results of the 2016 Election. What the below map also shows is just how truly widespread President Trump’s America-First message is to the nation’s voters. The radical left has spent decades pushing millions into high-population density centers (cities) whereby they become almost completely dependent upon government services in order to survive. This results in more voters for radical left Democrat candidates who repeatedly promise yet more of those services—for free. These millions of urban voters are more easily manipulated and thus become the foundation for the Democrat Party.  They do not represent the entirety of the country, though. Far from it in fact. 

It wasn’t Russia that won the 2016 election. It was us.

REPORT: CNN’s Trump Hatred Results in Double Digit Rating Collapse

CNN’s ratings are in a freefall as the 24/7 anti-Trump opinion network saw a double-digit loss last week. 

Image result for cnn DUMPSTER FIRE

Via Breitbart:

Last place CNN’s already humiliating ratings nosedived by double digits last week.

Even more than usual, some ten days ago the far-left CNN launched a 24/7 jihad against President Trump, going so far as to question his mental health, his patriotism, blaming him for a mass murder in New Zealand, and serial lying about his response to Charlottesville. But this unhinged hate campaign obviously turned off a considerable number of Americans.

When compared to this same week last year, CNN lost -16 percent of its primetime viewers and -17 of total day viewers; young people ran away screaming: In the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demo, CNN shed an incredible -31 percent of those viewers during primetime and -29 percent in total day.

…To put things in more perspective, in all of cable TV during primetime, Fox News hit number one, MSNBC number three (ESPN was number two), and CNN bottomed out at eleven.

During primetime, as you can see above, CNN cannot even average a million voters in a country of 330 million during a never-ending news cycle that is always turned up to 11.

For all of MSNBC’s flaws, and there are many, at least Democrats are not played for fools by that far-left outlet. Unlike CNN, which insults its audience with its laughable pose as objective, MSNBC makes no secret of its left-wing biases.

And for all of Fox’s flaws, and there are many, the fair and balanced network draws a sharp line between its opinion and news programs.

CNN, however, is a total sh*t show of shrill neuroses, fake news, full-blown lies, violence, and unbridled hate. Watching CNN is like watching an ex-husband seethe about his ex-wife all day and all night. There’s no insight from CNN, nothing interesting is ever passed along, and it certainly isn’t informative. CNN has not broken a consequential story in over a year — at least not one that didn’t turn out to be fake news.

…The network is a national laughingstock and only a total housecleaning could begin to repair the damage.

NICE! Pentagon finds $12.8 billion for POTUS Trump’s border wall.

It appears it really will be another promise made and another promise kept by an American president who continues to confound his enemies and delight his tens of millions of supporters both in the United States and around the world.

Related image

Via The Washington Examiner:

The Defense Department has identified $12.8 billion in possible funding that it could use to fulfill President Trump’s call for a border wall.

Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., released the 20-page spreadsheet on Twitter Monday night.

Trump last month declared a national emergency at the border, and said he wants to use $3.6 billion for border wall projects. The Pentagon’s list said it has found possible funding sources that are “in excess of the amount needed.”

Congress has passed a resolution to disapprove of Trump’s push for emergency funding, but Trump vetoed it, and lawmakers are not expected to have enough votes to override him. Opponents of Trump’s move are still hopeful that court challenge might prevent Trump from spending the money.

Tucker Carlson refused to back down to the ongoing threats against him by far left forces who want nothing less than to see all opposing viewpoints silenced forever which is of course a foundational trait of all authoritarian societies where mandated group-think rules over everyone and everything.

REPORT: Trump Supporters Continue To Stand By President Regardless Of What Media Says

Image result for trump supporters

Via HOT AIR:

When they’re not talking about impeachment, they’re speculating over who should challenge President Trump in a primary battle. To many in the bloated, liberal sector of the media, it seems to be a complete mystery why Donald Trump is still in office. Doesn’t everyone hate the guy? There can’t be more than a few personal friends and family members of his remaining who still want to see him in office, right?

…Jeb Bush (among others) has indicated that he’d like to see Maryland Governor Larry Hogan challenge Trump for the nomination. But as I’ve written here before, Hogan may be enjoying all the attention he receives as a potential contender, but he seems far too smart for that. He’s got a good thing going in his home state right now and doesn’t need to muck it up by jumping into that briar patch.

Who else is there? Recent polling shows that Trump would beat John Kasich by a margin of 67-14 (!) in a hypothetical primary matchup. (Even Republicans in Ohio don’t want Kasich to run.) Jeff Flake does even worse, not even cracking double digits.

For anyone still asking why there isn’t more primary activity taking place, you might need to peek out from your bubble for a moment. I have zero doubt that there are many traditional Republicans out there who aren’t wild about President Trump’s personal style or his social media habits. But they also know that regulations have been rolled back, the courts are being stocked with a generation’s worth of conservative judges, taxes and unemployment are low and wages are going up. You can put up with a lot of personal distaste for a deal like that.

And what are the alternatives? To vote for one of the Democrats, each and every one of which thus far are promising to roll back everything Trump is doing? I hardly think so. As this new polling seems to indicate, we might be in the middle of a bumpy ride at the moment, but almost nobody in GOP circles is talking about getting out of the car.

—————-

The media and political establishment in America remain stupidly stunned by the Trump phenomena. They don’t understand that the president represents something that has become so rare in modern society that that alone elevates his significance and appeal. President Trump says what so many are thinking but that the establishment has attempted to ban from public/social media discourse. And by doing so Mr. Trump is perhaps the truest of freedom fighters on the national stage. His delivery may sometimes be overly bellicose, his penchant for self-promotion mildly grating, but to his tens of millions of supporters those things don’t matter when compared to what the president is actually saying. It’s about America First. It’s about jobs, and safety, and less government in our daily lives. At a time when millions of other ignorant Americans are embracing authoritarian socialism (as all socialism inevitably becomes) as a means to allow them to do nothing and get paid for it, President Trump’s more open and honest approach is a much-needed beacon of common-sense in a world seemingly gone mad under the oppressive regimes of political correctness and self-loathing that have become the sad hallmarks of this age.

REPORT: CLINTONS’ DOJ DEAL WITH FBI EXPOSED

Rules for thee but not for me. So goes the sad reality of politics in America. While the Establishment Media attempts to distract with story after story of a college admissions scandal, or a shooting tragedy across the globe, the real news breaking in the U.S. this week involves some serious Deep State shenanigans whereby ruling class members like the Clintons and Obamas are allowed to do what they want when they want without fear of repercussions. 

Image result for Clinton and Strzok

Via SarahCarter.com:

DOJ Deal With FBI on Clinton Foundation

In one of the most explosive parts of Strzok’s testimony, he revealed that the Department of Justice struck a deal with the FBI not to investigate the Clinton Foundation emails.

Then-majority general counsel Zachary Somers asked Strzok if the “the Clinton Foundation was on the server.”

Strzok said he believed that it was “on one of the servers, if not the others.” However, he noted that there was an agreement between the DOJ and Hillary Clinton that the FBI was not allowed to search Clinton Foundation emails for that information.

———————

The signficance of the above testimony cannot be overstated. The Clintons were allowed to dictate terms to the FBI and the DOJ and that could not have happened without the approval of the Obama White House. Evidence was destroyed by the Clintons, secret tarmac meetings, undeniable proof of a Deep State attack against an incoming President of the United States (who remains far removed from the D.C. Deep State machine) on and on and on this sordid tale of political corruption at the very highest levels of our government goes.

The Clinton Machine Braces For Incoming Over Secret Tarmac Meeting With Obama AG Lynch

The facts of the scandal are undeniable. Yes, the far left media will continue to attempt to ignore, deflect, and distract, but with the release of the under oath testimony of former FBI official Lisa Page this week that outlined how charges against Hillary Clinton were imminent in 2016 only to then suddenly and inexplicably ‘disappear’ and be transformed into an elaborate Deep State investigation/hoax against the #1 political enemy of globalists like the Clintons and the Obamas, that secret tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch is now receiving a fresh wave of scrutiny. 

Image result for secret tarmac meeting Clinton Lynch

A few in D.C. right now are calling for a new investigation into the details of that now infamous meeting which some believe was, in fact, a former president, Clinton, detailing some significant threats toward a then sitting president, Obama, regarding the state of the investigation against Hillary Clinton.

Did Bill Clinton go scorched earth on Loretta Lynch (whose career she owes to the Clintons) and Barack Obama? Given that the evidence disclosed this week shows how the investigation into Hillary Clinton was subsequently cut short and dismissed with that odd press conference performance by then FBI Director James Comey, it certainly seems plausible. So much so that here is a recent headline from the Washington Examiner:

Lisa Page testimony means DOJ might want to re-open case against Hillary Clinton

Lock her up?

More and more, it appears the Justice Department should have tried to do just that to Hillary Clinton and that only nefarious interference kept the attempt from occurring.

…Minus the interference, based on a plain reading of the law, Clinton should have been indicted.

By some (admittedly debatable) interpretations of the law and the applicable statute of limitations, she still should be.


 

2020 Preview: Is Texas A Battlground State For Democrats?

After years of warnings to conservatives, it appears Texas is truly on the verge of becoming a political battleground state. 

How ironic that the key to leftist totalitarianism in America would be attained via the home of the Alamo. 

Image result for turning texas blue

Via The New York Times:

Texas is on the doorstep of emerging as a battleground state, and any number of Democrats might stand a chance to compete there in 2020 for the presidency or the Senate.

…There’s clearly additional upside for Democrats if they could pair their recent gains among white voters with improvement among Hispanic voters (through some combination of persuasion, higher turnout among registrants and newly registered voters).

Can Democrats really turn out Hispanic voters in huge numbers in Texas? There are real barriers, and you wouldn’t expect Hispanic Democrats to turn out in particularly high numbers given their low turnout elsewhere in the country. It is far-fetched to suggest Hispanic mobilization will fundamentally transform the electorate and turn Texas into a blueish state anytime soon.

But a more modest increase in turnout or support among Hispanic voters is fairly likely if Texas sees the campaign dollars and attention that come with a contested state in a presidential year. When Mr. Obama contested Virginia, North Carolina and Colorado in 2008, the turnout there increased by an average of 13 percent to 23 percent over 2004 levels, which included a mix of higher turnout among registrants and thousands of newly registered voters. Given the extraordinary turnout in the 2018 midterm election nationwide, it is plausible that turnout will be up substantially in Texas regardless of whether the state is a battleground.

Put it together, and Texas is on the cusp of being a true (if Republican-tilting) battleground state. It might not be immediately and vigorously contested, as Arizona or North Carolina will most likely be, given the greater expense of campaigning in Texas and the fact that it starts out to the right of those states. But if Democrats chose to contest it seriously in 2020, there wouldn’t be anything crazy about that.

———————–

What the above NYT article outlines is the long-term approach the globalists have been initiating in Texas. Increase illegal immigration along with out-of-state immigration into Texas in order to increase the overall numbers of Democrat voters. Combine that with the well-practiced urban vote counting shenanigans that have long been a hallmark of the Democrat get-out-the-vote machine and you have the makings of a significant political shift in the Lone Star state. Each year tens of thousands more people move to Texas to escape the high tax liberal policies of places like California and New York only to then turn around and vote for the very same high tax liberal policies they escaped from. The state capital of Austin is now dominated by such left-leaning big government advocates who want more illegals voting, more government regulation, and more centralized authority and they are working very hard to bring that vision to all of Texas.

And you know what? They’re succeeding.

If anyone thinks Texas is safe from a far left electoral takeover you’re sadly engaged in a political version of the bird box. Just because you choose not to see reality doesn’t mean it’s not out there all around you. 

Remember the Alamo.

REPORT: Hillary Clinton Would Be In Jail Today If Obama DOJ Hadn’t Ordered Stand Down On Investigations

Remember that famous presidential debate line by then-candidate Donald Trump when he told Hillary Clinton if he had been in charge during the investigation into her private email server (among other things) that she’d “be in jail”? Well, a breaking report out this week provides some serious substance to the presidential debate boast.

If not for the (improper) protection/intervention of the Obama DOJ, Hillary Clinton would very likely be in jail by now.

Via FOX NEWS:

Lisa Page admitted Obama DOJ ordered stand-down on Clinton email prosecution, GOP rep says

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page admitted under questioning from Texas Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe last summer that “the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information,” the congressman alleged in a social media post late Tuesday, citing a newly unearthed transcript of Page’s closed-door testimony.

Page and since-fired FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, who were romantically involved, exchanged numerous anti-Trump text messages in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election, and Republicans have long accused the bureau of political bias. But Page’s testimony was perhaps the most salient evidence yet that the Justice Department improperly interfered with the FBI’s supposedly independent conclusions on Clinton’s criminal culpability, Ratcliffe alleged.

…Responding to the transcript revelations, Trump on Wednesday tweeted: “The just revealed FBI Agent Lisa Page transcripts make the Obama Justice Department look exactly like it was, a broken and corrupt machine. Hopefully, justice will finally be served. Much more to come!”

Federal law states that “gross negligence” in handling the nation’s intelligence can be punished criminally with prison time or fines, and there is no requirement that defendants act intentionally or recklessly.

Originally Comey accused the former secretary of state of being “grossly negligent” in handling classified information in a draft dated May 2, 2016, but that was modified to claim that Clinton had merely been “extremely careless” in a draft dated June 10, 2016.

———————

So, in summary, the Deep State shielded Hillary Clinton from justice while orchestrating a still-ongoing hoax of investigations against President Trump.

That isn’t democracy. That’s centralized, authorititive, and overtly abusive power that continues to attempt a coup of a duly elected President of the United States.

It’s going to be very interesting to see how the Trump administration responds as well as his tens of millions of supporters.

The point of this show has never been us. But now, it’s obvious to everybody. There is no pretending that it is not happening. It is happening, and so, going forward, we’ll be covering their efforts to make us be quiet.”

Will You Support Tucker Carlson As Far Left Demands Fox News Cancel His Show?

Tucker Carlson is under attack because he is very effective at exposing the intellectual fraud that is socialism and political correctness. Far left mobs have literally attacked his home over how easily he dispatches their authoritarian belief that one big government must rule over us all. Now, another mob has formed, this time using (out of context tongue in cheek) comments Carlson made a decade earlier via his radio program. His enemies believe they have enough to force Fox to fire him by the end of this week.

Will you let that happen or will you give Tucker Carlson the kinds of ratings that instead prove to Fox he is not so easily disposed of?

Tucker Carlson refuses to apologize amid uproar over past comments on ‘extremely primitive’ women

Fox News host Tucker Carlson refused to apologize after clips from old radio interviews in which Carlson made controversial remarks about women and child rape were circulated on social media Sunday.

Media Matters, a self-described “progressive media watchdog,” published clips and transcripts from appearances Carlson made between 2006 and 2011 on a popular shock-jock radio program called “Bubba the Love Sponge.”

In two appearances, Carlson jokingly downplayed the crimes of cult leader – and convicted child sex offender – Warren Jeffs. In other clips, he calls women “extremely primitive,” says he feels “sorry for unattractive women,” uses the c-word to describe a woman, calls one woman a “pig” and refers to two other women as “whores.”

During one of the discussions about Jeffs, who was accused, among other things, of arranging marriages between underage girls and adult men, Carlson said what he had done was not as bad as a violent assault.


 

Dolly Parton Tells Elizabeth Warren – Stop Using My Music!

Dolly Parton has long been among the most beloved and respected American entertainers but that doesn’t mean she puts up with nonsense. Case in point—the use of her blockbuster hit 9 to 5 by socialist presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren. (especially ironic given Warren’s agenda would pay people for NOT working.) 

Warren is learning a hard rule—don’t mess with Dolly.

Via Fox News:

According to Dolly Parton’s manager, the singer never gave Senator Elizabeth Warren permission to use her hit song ‘9 to 5’ at a town hall rally in New York City. Parton, who is notorious for keeping both her music and herself out of politics, doesn’t ever allow her songs to be involved with any political campaigns, regardless of party affiliation. Warren’s campaign declined to comment on Parton’s manager’s response in regards to using the song.

Parton is notorious for keeping both her music and herself out of politics. Following an appearance at the 2017 Emmys alongside “9 to 5” co-stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda, the two bashed President Trump live on stage. Parton lightened the mood, saying: “Well, I know about support,” the country legend said pointing at her chest.

“I don’t voice my political opinions,” she told Fox News at the time. “I just get out there and entertain. To me, that’s what I do. I don’t condemn them.”

She elaborated in a recent interview with The Guardian saying:

“I’ve got as many Republican friends as I’ve got Democrat friends and I just don’t like voicing my opinion on things. I’ve seen things before, like the Dixie Chicks. You can ruin a career for speaking out,” she said. “I respect my audience too much for that, I respect myself too much for that. Of course I have my own opinions, but that don’t mean I got to throw them out there because you’re going to piss off half the people.”

The Warren campaign declined to comment on Nozell’s response regarding its use of “9 to 5.”
